Vinohrady

Neighbouring central Prague, today Vinohrady shines as a graceful and leafy residential area replete with elegant dining opportunities and charming shops. The name Vinohrady means "vineyards".As far back as the 14th century, at the behest of Czech king Charles IV, the area was indeed covered by vineyards.

Many of its grand Neo-Renaissance, Art Nouveau, Pseudo Baroque, and Neo-Gothic buildings date from the prosperous mid to late 19th century and early 20th century, and many have been and continue to be restored in an uncommon array of colour and architectural detail.

Of particular note is the Church of the Most Sacred Heart of our Lord (Kostel Nejsvetejšího Srdce Páne) on Jirího z Podebrad Square. This eccentric modernist church is truly unique, and the nearby farmers’ market that visits the square on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, serves as a reminder that you’re in a prime and cultivated residential neighbourhood.

How to get to the centre

A pleasant 20 minute walk along charming Vinohradska street will take you directly to Wenceslas square. Alternatively, the route is well served by trams and the metro.

Transport

These apartments are located 1 minute walk from the tram stop “Vinohradska Vodarna” and 4 minutes walk from metro station “Jiriho z Podebrad” which is on the “green” line A – the direct line to the Old town or airport. By metro it will take you only 3 minutes (2 stops) to reach Wenceslas square or 6 minutes (4 stops) to reach the Old town square. The apartments’ location allows easy access to Prague’s extensive and cost-effective public-transport system.

Parking

Most of the streets in front and around the building offer free parking. It is the closest zone to the center where free parking is available. A map of streets with free parking will be provided to guests. Underground secured parking is available at the Korunni Dvur garage which is 5 minutes walk from the apartment. Price is 400 CZK/ 15 EUR for 24 hrs. Reservations upon prior request.

Zizkov

Close to Prague’s centre, Žižkov derives its name from the Hussite general Jan Žižka, whose impressive statue sits proudly on his horse on the top Vítkov hill. His statue is located near the massive National Monument, which contains a Czech history museum.

Military buffs would enjoy the nearby tank-fronted Czech army museum.

Prior to 1922, Žižkov was an independent city.

A celebrated oasis within Zizkov is the Reigrovy Sady park that invites a casual stroll, a gratifying jog or an indulgent pint of fresh Gambrinus beer in the large and highly popular outdoor "pub". The park’s location on a hill affords beautiful views of the Prague Castle. Children will likely enjoy the playground near the beer garden.

Žižkov has taken on an alternative, eclectic personality in recent times, perhaps most markedly represented by Žižkov TV Tower - standing some 216 metres high, it’s a distinctive structure visible from nearly everywhere in the city. The faceless babies crawling up and down the tower were added in 2000 by Czech pop artist David Cerný, because apparently the Žižkov Tower wasn’t strange-looking enough as it was. The tower contains an observation deck and restaurant, and a mini golf course was recently installed in the surrounding park.

How to get to the centre

A picturesque 15 minute walk will lead you to Wenceslas Square. Alternatively, the locale is well served by trams and the metro.

Transport

Both our apartments are located in walking distance from bus and tram stops. Apartment Afrodita can be reached from tram stop "Husinecka" or bus stop "U Pamatniku". Apartment Talia is located close to tram stop "Lipanska" and bus stop Tachovske Namesti. The apartments' location allows easy access to Prague's extensive and cost-effective public-transport system.

Parking

We can provide you with tips and alternatives regarding parking possibilities.

Patrick, April 2017

The apartment was as advertised and met our expectations and has pretty much everything required for a comfortable stay in Prague. Good location, 5 minute walk to the metro and just a couple of stations away from oldtown. A few really good places to eat and drink around the apartment. Near a couple of supermarkets and stores that have all we needed during our vacations.

Pedro, October 2018

The flat is easily reachable by public transport and quite near the centre of Prague (approximately 10 mins using the subway). The area is nice and quiet. The flat itself provided enough space and was well equipped. Alexandra was very quick and helpful to respond to any messages. Before the trip she sent a PDF with instructions on how to locate the apartment which proved very useful.

Sebastian, September 2016

I was very pleased to stay in this apartment during my stay in Praha. Alexandra pick me up from airport and explained sites and different areas of Praha on our way to apartment. This apartment is in uppermost floor and has beautiful view over city towards Petrin hill and Hradnacy. All necessary equipments are in place, bedroom and living room nicely decorated and WiFi worked well. There are plenty of small restaurants, breakfast places and pubs just around corner which is perfect if you’re lazy to use kitchen. Metro and tram stops are very close by so it is easy to travel to city center too. Vinohrady area is excellent and safe place to stay without tourist crowds - and prices in restaurants+pubs are much lower too. There are also many nice parks for a pleasant morning/evening walk. Alexandra was extremely helpful with everything and communication worked very well all time. I can recommend Alexandra as host to everyone who like to stay in good, clean and well equipped apartment in Praha!

Terry, Jun 2016

Alexandra was an excellent host, provided excellent information on the apartment, how to get there, and what to do in Prague. She was a top rate communicator. The apartment was just as described in the listing, and included those little extras like teas and sugar that we appreciate so much. We were very comfortable, and felt it was a very good location. We would definitely consider staying there again, and would recommend this apartment to other travellers. Thanks Alexandra!

John, Feb 2015

Clean, comfortable, quiet and cozy apartment in a great location. Perfect for singles or couples. Alexandra welcomed us on time and explained everything to us. Her pre-arrival`kit was very helpful. Location very close to main station and Florenc station, well served by public transport and in a very lively neighborhood, though the apartment itself is very quiet. Highly recommended!!!!

Paulo, Dec 2014

Good location in walking distance to the center. Apartment freshly refurbished with nice design. Host very helpful, good communication before and after the stay. The "guide to Prague" sent as a PDF beforehand proved to be very useful.

Tamas, Nov. 2014

We had a wonderful time in Prague. We chose Alexandra`s apartment by chance because it is close to our son who works there. It was in his building! Very close to all transportation, supermarkets, coffee shops, restaurants and bars. A farmers market is only about 4 blocks away. They apartment is clean, safe, well equipped and comfortable. The bathrooms are well lit and the washing machine is a huge plus. I`d recommend Alexandra`s apartment for anytime of year. Thanks Alexandra!!

Pam, Nov 2015

Amazing apartment with an equally amazing host. Apartment had everything we need and more, such as, wifi, TV, two bathrooms with toiletries and cleaning products. The apartment is also in a great location with easy access to tram and metro lines. The host also provided a great information package prior to and on arrival. Alexandra was extremely helpful to us, particularly on our first night when one of the guests with me accidentally dropped the apartment keys down the lift shaft, she came quickly to help and we were very grateful to her especially as it was a Saturday night! Thanks again Alexandra.
